Natasha takes the plunge for St Margaret's Somerset Hospice
7:00am Friday 20th December 2013 in News
A BRIDGWATER hairdresser plunged 15,000 feet to raise funds for St Margaret’s Somerset Hospice.
Natasha Taylor, 21, made the leap despite her fear of heights.
She said: “It was the scariest experience of my life but also the biggest adrenaline rush I’ve ever had – the entire experience was indescribable.”
Her spectacular feat raised more than £2,000 for the hospice, thanks to donations from family, friends and clients at her salon, A Cut Above.
Thanking those who donated, Natasha said: “It was also important for me to do something to give a little back to the Hospice after the amazing care my grandmother received.”
“The staff could not do enough for her and that made such a difference to her, and to us.”
